We will miss you dearly! Taylor Nicole White, October 1, 2010 Chuck Barger has and will continue to be one of the most kind hearted, generous, funny, smart, handsome, courageous men and by far the best story teller I have ever met. I can only imagine the joy Jesus is now having at having Chuck in His presence. Chuck you will forever be most loved. Roxanna Lindsey, September 16, 2010 Aunt Jeannette, Sheila, Melody and Eric: I will always remember Uncle Chuck fondly. I always missed you all when you moved to California so many years ago, but am glad that our paths have crossed, at least occasionally, over the years. My love and prayers are with you at this time.
